    4 fantastic days in the Alps

    I had the chance to spend 4 days in the Alps and ride a tour from Salzburg to Lienz, Sterzing, Santa Maria and back to Feldkirch.

    I converted my Baum Cubano into a Tourer and used a Tubus Fly, 2 Vaude Aqua Front bags and a Topeak Fuelfframe bag.


    Wednesday morning by Train to Salzbug and Saturday evening back from Feldkirch was the plan :-)

    Tag 1: on STRAVA

    the route was planned from Salzburg over Hirschbichl and Großglockner to Lienz. But unfortunalty because ot the bad wether the Hochalpenstraße was closed for bikes and so I had to change my plans and go by Felbertauern - there is a shuttle through the Felbertauern tunnel.

    Awesome trip!

    I spent a number of days in a hospital in Feldkirch when I was younger and dumber.

    That Stelvio must have been a killer. I love watching the pros climb it in the Giro.

    Now I'm excited.

    Headed to Corvara (actually Colfosco) for 16 days of riding, leaving next Tuesday. This is our 4th year. This year we'll be doing the Sella Ronda (the actual event when they close all four passes to cars), Gavia, Erbe, Falzarego, Valparola, Giau, Staulanza, Cibiano, Pelegrino, and Rolle plus whatever else we have time for.

    We'll be there during the third annual Plose bike day as well but not sure I have it in me to do Erbe thru Luson again (getting old).

    How was your weather? Your timing was good since the tourists show up in the second week of July and riding becomes much less enjoyable.

    Thanks for sharing! I got a lotta goosebumps looking at these photos. Wish we had some better road riding conditions around here.

    Do love how you can convince a road bike to schlep some stuff in addition to going fast and climbing mountains.
